Video: Bill Buckner, 25 years later
Twenty-five years have passed since Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner misplayed a little ground ball and broke Boston's heart. The moment came to define his career and change his family's life.
These days, Buckner and his wife are in a new place. After several tough years and bitter memories, Buckner seems to have a more positive outlook and even poked fun at himself on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."
E:60's Jeremy Schaap sits down with Buckner and his wife a quarter century after the infamous Red Sox Game 6 loss to the Mets to discuss what life's been like for one of baseball's most reclusive players.
